Hatch calls McCain request that Trump not attend his funeral 'ridiculous'

The New York Times cited McCain as saying that he wished he had instead chosen former Republican Senator Joseph Lieberman. "Instead of leaving the past in the past, McCain has made it a mission of his to undermine the Trump agenda".

Hatch said on Monday that McCain's wish for a Trump-free ceremony was "ridiculous", drawing the ire of Meghan McCain.

Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) thinks it's "ridiculous" ailing Sen.

In his new memoir to be released later this month, McCain offers a harsh assessment of Trump's leadership, and says he feels less constrained to share his thoughts because he is not seeking reelection.

Hatch's comments would represent the first criticism from a GOP colleague of McCain's reported decision to not have Trump attend his funeral.

Former Vice President Joe Biden, who is a close friend of Senator McCain and visited him at his Arizona ranch the prior weekend, said the two talked about how the U.S.'s "international reputation is being damaged" under Trump. McCain, a Navy bomber pilot during the Vietnam War, was shot down over North Vietnam, and spent several years in a prisoner of war camp. Trump infamously said of McCain in 2015, "He was a war hero because he was captured". Many commentators, expressing their support to Trump, have criticized McCain.

The electorate has moved in a direction far from the "maverick" ideals that allowed McCain to consistently attract praise from both sides of the aisle and win his party's presidential nomination. It finally came to a head when his wife and daughter were forced to call the president and ask that he not personally attack the senator while he's fighting for his life. In other words, McCain was demanding something that would ensure the defeat of any attempt to gut ObamaCare. There's a lot of muddy water that's gone under the bridge between Trump and McCain.

Senator McCain's reported request for Mr trump to stay away has sparked a row among Republicans.
